University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada
The Student Teachers Anti-Racism Society (STARS) promotes anti-racism education at the College of Education, University of Saskatchewan through the support of the College. We work collaboratively to understand, identify, and address individual and systemic racism and its interlocking forms of oppression based on gender, sexuality, ability, class, religion and other socially constructed categories. We believe that anti-racist and decolonizing education, when woven together, can create humanizing and emancipatory change for everyone.

STARS teach-in: idle KnoW more Feb 12, 2013

You are invited to attend a teach-in shedding light on one of the most talked about and important social movements generated within Saskatchewan in recent years: Idle No More. While the movement has stirred some controversy in the public domain, the architects' vision is one of unification and collective action toward health and wellbeing now and into the future. INM organizers Dr. Alex Wilson, Erica Lee, Serena Gamble, and Dion Tootoosis will be on hand to share their insights about the movement and field questions from the audience.

Please join us on Wednesday, Feb. 13th at 4:00 p.m. in Education 1004 to discuss the efforts of Idle No More; and, how we can work together to overcome obstacles of life-blind ideology, ignorance, and continued investments in racial/colonial oppression in order to safeguard our world for present and future generations.

We would like to extend a special thanks to Elder Joseph Neytowhow for blessing the event and sharing his wisdom on the subject. Refreshments will be provided. Everyone is welcome.
